Handcrafted silver with gold details ring. Decorated with sapphires, and dark diamonds. Rigid or articulated, solid or hollow, richly decorated or plain, with or without hanging bells, of silver or gold, bronze or copper, but always of strong fabrication, anklets in India are used in pairs. Our design is inspired by a rigid silver anklet from Punjab. Its name, Jhanjar or tinkling refers to the peculiar sound produced by spherules on the inside – gujri. Rigid silver anklets terminating in protomes of makara animals facing each other were traditional in the near east in the 8th century. The concept spread westwards and eastwards from there and it reached India, where it is still common today. In Europe the facing heads were introduced by a known Parisian jeweller during the art deco period, but this time on bracelets.
